Soft-starts, wintering and your time to shine

I first started using the term “soft-start” on our winter yoga retreat last January. The weekend started  6pm Friday welcome class. Knowing most of the participants were coming from work or a days’ travelling, I suggested a soft start to allow a more gradual transition from office / packing / driving mode, to switching off […]

Black Friday Woes, Colour Friday Wins

Black Friday Woes, Colour Friday Wins I love a bargain, but I hate the pressure of time ltd offers, the FOMO, the mass panic buying. I want to save money and I love a special offer. But I hate the consumerism and commercialism and the ethos of Black Friday. Black Friday has us spending more […]
